Motorsports enthusiasts to show off their ‘rides’ Saturday


The 2nd annual Maricopa Motorsports Day car show will be held Saturday. Last year there were over 75 entries, and more than 500 people came out to enjoy the day.

This is an opportunity to come out and meet your neighbors as they display the results of their hobby and hard work. There is no admission fee for this event. Bring back and share childhood and teenage memories by seeing that certain car or truck.

There is no fee to enter your ‘ride.’ The event is open to all vehicles and all years, including hot rods, muscle cars, racecars, trucks, motorcycles and high performance boats. Register today to show the community your finished project or work in progress.

A car bash will provide an opportunity for anyone to take a swing at a car with a sledgehammer. This entire family event promises to be fun for all ages with food and activities.

Each entrant will receive a goodie bag, free coffee, a dash plaque and a free lunch with drink. Other food will be available for modest cost. There will not be any judging of cars so bring your ‘baby’ finished or not.

For further information, contact the Maricopa Motorsports Day hotline at (520) 280-8532.
